There’s actually been quite a few themes that I enjoyed this season, and to make up for a lack of music posts last few months I plan to do quite a few for this season. They’ll pop up at random until the end of the season. This is the second one from this season from an anime I’m blogging and enjoying.
Sankarea’s OP theme, Esoragoto by nano.RIPE.
It’s a pleasant song that made it quite obvious from the very start that this anime isn’t going to be anything serious. Instead, even though it was about death, it gave it a rather nice cheerful, energetic and adventurous feel. Like in Hanasoku Iroha, the energy from the OPs was very well matched by the energy of Ohana. And I think this OP also matches the overall optimism of this series. This nano.RIPE song, like the OPs of Hanasaku Iroha, makes me think of running again, except this time it’s running with a dead cat by my side… Anime can influence you in many ways… But anyways, I’m liking nano.RIPE more and more. They never fail to add a cheer to a bad day. It’s that sort of energy they have, that can even make death seem alright, especially if you’re resurrected.
Don’t think I need to say much about the anime itself, however if you are interested in what I think, please have a look at my episodic blogs ^^.
Here are the lyrics then:
Nemurenai yoru ni kiita monogatari ga esoragoto da to shitara
Eien wo shiru yori kairaku wo motomete ima wo kuyande shimau no wa
Kokoro no fukaku ni sumitsuita kage kara nigeru tame da to shitara
Soredemo atashi wa atashi wo aishite irareru nara
Hanbun ni wareta taiyou ga asa wo tsurete kite yami ni nareta shinkei wo jiwari shigeki suru
Okiwasureta nounai wa aete sonomama de shinario no kieta monogatari da
Jiyuu ni jiyuu ni kaji wo totte motto takaku he maiagatte
Kimetsuketa kotae no uragawa de naiteru ano ko no koe wa kikoenai
Kanjou nante dareka no sabita mono sashi de hakaru mono de wa nai darou, nai darou
Dare no tame ja naku atashi wa atashi ga ima wo warau tame ni kizu wo kakushiteru
Sukoshi kareta koe de esoragoto wo utau ima koko ni aru mono ga subete da
Hanbun ni wareta taiyou de mata kyou ga hajimaru monogatari no tsuzuki wa kono te no naka
Aisareru koto ga ketsumatsu ja nai kara mitasareru dake ja tarinai deshou
Jiyuu ni jiyuu ni kaji wo totte motto tooku he tori ni natte
Jiyuu ni jiyuu ni kaji wo totte motto tooku he hoshi ni natte
That’s it for now. Stick around to see what else I can recommend to you nice people. Next one will be up soon.
